I was the first man to discover and oppose the mosque for Kilkenny – because it’s too big and incongruous for the vernacular of the area, it should not tower over the city’s main Christian cemetery – and it’s 64 foot high minaret will dominate the skyline of the main entrance road to the themed Irish Christian city of the Catholic Confederation of Ireland 1642=1649.
As editor of The Kilkenny Journal I got to know about the mosque from a Moroccan I am helping who is threatened, unfairly I think, with deportation ( as a trainee chef he was the best worker in the kitchen of the Newpark Hotel)
As such I am going for election to Kilkenny County Council for the Callan-Thomastown-Graignamanagh electoral area. I want to keep Ireland Irish and I want all our Council houses for the Irish. I want the best jobs for the Irish too – what’s wrong with that in their own country , I ask.
No councillor of Kilkenny County Council has dared stand up and speak out like me. That is my way and that I will continue to do if you elect me on Friday May 24th as your member for to represent you all proudly on Kilkenny County Council .
Eugene McGuinness says: “Only for Michael McGrath and his Kilkenny Journal I would never have known about the mosque. ” Many people are voting for Eugene too .
